Tidelands Health awarded UWHC with a grant of $25,000 to be used to fund our new summer learning program, Camp United. Camp United is a program focused on improving math and literacy skills in kindergarten and first grade students in our county. In June, 2021, Camp United will be held at Loris Elementary School.
Approximately 60 students will benefit from Camp United beginning in mid-June 2021. Camp United will be held Monday – Thursday from 8:00am – 2:00pm. These students will be referred based on their DIEBLS and MAP scores. Teachers will provide instruction to these students for 6 weeks in order to improve their literacy and math skills.
At United Way of Horry County, one of our main impact areas is Education. We want to help prevent the summer slide, a tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year. Horry County Students should be able to meet their educational goals and be on track with their grade level. We have developed Camp United in order to help students reach their full educational potential.
